Evening Sessions for Employment Tribunals

  • Posted

The Tribunals Service has started a six-month pilot scheme, with Stratford and Cardiff tribunals sitting between 6pm and 8pm to hear straightforward claims involving a judge sitting without members (such as unpaid wages claims).

Clearly there are implications for those with childcare responsibilities, and it is hoped that both parties need to consent to an evening slot (the precise details of the scheme are not published, although you can see a summary press release).

But well done to the Tribunals Service - it's a fabulous idea, and means that people might not need to take a day off work to attend the tribunal for straightforward claims.
